Man City have just completed the signing of Gabriel Jesus to their squad to add to the presence of Jesus Navas to make that 2 Jesus’s in one team.
Manchester City have confirmed the £27million signing of Palmeiras forward Gabriel Jesus.
Just 24 hours after completing Leroy Sane’s £37m move from Schalke, City fought off competition from Barcelona to capture the exciting 19-year-old Brazilian winger.
Like Sane, Jesus – who is representing his country at the Rio Olympics – has agreed a five-year contract at the Etihad although he will stay with Palmeiras until Christmas when the Brazilian season ends before joining Pep Guardiola’s side.
He attracted interest from Europe’s top clubs after scoring 19 goals in 30 games this season.
Barcelona, in particular, were keen to team him up with compatriot Neymar at the Nou Camp, but City confirmed on Wednesday that they have got their man for an initial fee understood to be £27m with the possibility of up to £4m in add-ons.
After sealing his move, Jesus said: ‘Manchester City is one of the best clubs in the world so I’m really pleased to sign.
‘We have many great talents in the team and a fantastic manager in Pep Guardiola that I can learn so much from.
‘I’m looking forward to showing the City fans what I can do and I think we’ll have a great future together.’
Well, lets look and see whether a pair of Jesus will give City the title.
